1) No, not really. There're ferries from Pudong (however quite a walk from Super Brand Mall, which is the nearest major landmark I can think of) to the Bund near Jinling Donglu. Alternatively, take the metro from Lujiazui stop and alight 1 stop west at Nanjing Donglu stop and then walk for about 10-20 mins (depending on your walking speed and amount of people) to get to the Bund. Taking a taxi is usually NOT a good option at all.
2) How about IKEA? :) Don't expect to find bargains on antiques! If you find a good price for anything, they'll be fakes.
3) I wouldn't recommend buying those in Shanghai, these are things which you spend quite a lot of money on and would want them to last! Genuine foreign brand names are going to be more expensive than elsewhere outside of China as there're high import taxes. Local brands are cheaper but then they won't come with English-language manual nor international warranty, so you're screwed if there're future problems, which is very probable.
4) What are you more interested in seeing/doing/experiencing? Different people have different opinions.

it is easy to go from Pudong to the Bund by Metro or ferry

there are like 30 shops that sell antiques to the west of Yu Yuan Gardens (the one tourist place I would recommend you visit)

I would not buy electronics in Shanghai if you do not read Chinese

Travel Tips for Shanghai

Beware Spit balls!

by Icemaiden02

It is a Chinese belief that when phlegm builds up in your throat or mouth, it is "bad" for your body, and thus it is better to spit it out than swallow it. Consequently, you'll witness a lot of locals spitting *constantly* as you walk by. Watch your feet-- not only do you risk stepping into a ball of spit, you might have one actually shooting at your legs if you are not careful!

Pudong International Airport

by meteorologist1

International flights arrive at Pudong International Airport, which is about 30 km east from the city. The cheapest way to get to Shanghai from the airport is to use the airport bus service. See bus schedules, routes, and fares on the airport web site. You can also use the taxi but it's going to cost a lot more. And also alternatively, you can try the Maglev Train, which is the world's first commercial magnetic levitation line.

People's Park

by limledi

People's Park is a nice oasis located right at the middle of the city. It is very accessible coz it is a short walk from the metro station of People's Square. You can find many local senior citizens playing chinese checkers or other games to while their time in this park. There's also a children play area. A lagoon can be seen inside the park. I found a boat in the lagoon but I don't know if it's for rent. Plenty of benches where you can sit after a long stroll around the park. We rested on a covered kiosk where we sit for a while before heading for Nanjing Lu. Nice place to relax and a stark contrast from the hustle and bustle of the outside city life. Cool place with plenty of trees providing shade.

Shanghai, impressive, new and old-fashioned, China

by pothalion

I was on the bamboo course, and the group had this short brake to enjoy the city. We got there by train, a nice trip from Hangzhou, eating the classical noodles soup and chating with friends.

So we went to stay in a hotel near the downtown. The hotel is also classical (for us), exactly the same as the others we stayed in China.

We went on a ride to the Pearl Tower. Excelent view and impressive engeneering mark. And then the New Bund, that reminded me the shores of Brazil. Very nice. The indians Tlana and Tsira told me that they liked the old buildings there, because it looked like the english buildings from the last-last century.

We ate a pizza at Pizza Hut, to scape from the "traditional chinese cuisine", and walked around in the local "broadway", full of bright signs and bright people.

A strange man came and offered us some dope. And later on a funny seaman from Phillipines came to talk to us. I also saw some guys hanging around and imagined that they could be from the chinese mob, the triads of Shanghai, cool stuff to imagine, right?!
